Double Review ~ Full Measures & Eyes Turned Skyward by Rebecca Yarros

Full Measures
by Rebecca Yarros 
Released: February 10, 2014


She knew. That’s why Mom hadn’t opened the door. She knew he was dead.

Twenty years as an army brat and Ember Howard knew, too. The soldiers at the door meant her dad was never coming home. What she didn’t know was how she would find the strength to singlehandedly care for her crumbling family when her mom falls apart.

Then Josh Walker enters her life. Hockey star, her new next-door neighbor, and not to mention the most delicious hands that insist on saving her over and over again. He has a way of erasing the pain with a single look, a single touch. As much as she wants to turn off her feelings and endure the heartache on her own, she can’t deny their intense attraction.

Until Josh’s secret shatters their world. And Ember must decide if he’s worth the risk that comes with loving a man who could strip her bare.

Wow this was just one of those books that stays with you well past the last page. This story took me on a whirlwind of emotions. It was a heartfelt and emotional story that pulled at the heartstrings. Even with not living the military life I know that this story was realistic and beliveable.

No woman wants to get a knock on the door that would change your life forever.  After Ember’s mom crumbles and life as the Howard knows it is changed forever Ember steps up. She may not have thought it herself but she was so very strong. How at such a young age she got the strength I may never know. She was selfless and caring. Her character is one every woman can look up to.

Josh is a oh so sexy. But he’s also sweet and caring and lovable. You just can’t help falling for him. When Ember least expects ithe’s there to help pick up the pieces and put her life together. But just so easily can the fall out be when secrets are revealed.

Ember and Josh’s story is a journey of love and taking risks. It’s about finding love and holding on to it.

I loved this from beginning to end with a great story to keep you wanting more. I look forward to more from this author and this series! A must read in my book.

Eyes Turned Skyward
by Rebecca Yarros 
Released: December 8, 2014


Life's too short to play it safe...
Since her sister's death, twenty-year-old Paisley Donovan, who shares her sister’s heart condition, is treated like delicate glass by her parents. But nothing will stop her from completing her Bucket List—even if it kills her. And it almost does, until Jagger Bateman pulls her from the ocean and breathes more than air into her lungs—he sets her soul on fire.
Jagger is enrolled in the country's toughest flight school. He's wickedly hot, reckless, and perfect for a girl looking to live life to the fullest. Except that Paisley is the commanding general's daughter, and her boyfriend is Jagger's biggest rival. Now Paisley must decide just how much to risk for a guy who makes her heart pound a little too hard.
They're flying through dangerous territory—and one wrong move could make them crash and burn...

Another amazing book in the Flight & Glory  series; with a strong-willed herione and a sexy alpha military man. Once again Rebecca wrote an emotional read that had me on the edge of my seat from page one to the very end. I devoured this story only for it to end and want more.

Paisley only wants to be normal and make her own choices.  She has a list and wants to knock as many items off before she thinks she’s doomed. She meets Mr. California while checking one of her items off and is instantly mesmorized.

Jagger has sworn of women while he’s in flight school. No distractions are needed. That is  until a second chance meeting with the beautiful woman whose life he saved in Florida. He’s willing to risk the burn and take what ever she’s willing to give.

Paisley & Jagger both have secrets but only one of theirs could be deadly. Together they will take a journey of finding love and hope. This story is filled with emotional turmoil, love and friendship. You’ll fall in love with the sweet-sexy Jagger and his Paisley.

I really hope that Carter & Morgan get their own book. That should be interesting. I look forward to uncovering the mysterious Garyson in the next installment in this series.
